Proposal to Add Federal Telecommunications Service Long Distance (FTS LD)
the network access method. This access method is burstable from the base rate in full
1.0 Mbps increments based on the 95
percentile charging method
A commitment of
15 percent of the full pipe capacity is required. Refer to Table 220.127.116.11 1 Internet

Administrative (Back End) Connectivity
Administrative (Back end) Connectivity is provided as an optional service. AT&T
Internet Data Centers are directly connected to our high speed packet networks,
allowing quick and cost effective access to AT&T's premier FR, Private Line and
ATM services. POTS and ISDN connections are also available. Refer to Table
22.214.171.124 1 Administrative (Back end) Connectivity Options.
AT&T collects the number of bits (in both octets in and octets out) in 5 minute intervals. The number of bits is then divided by
300 seconds (5 minutes x 60 seconds) to derive one Inbound sample and one Outbound sample. The total monthly sample
size will then be sorted in descending order (from largest to smallest) in two separate groups (Inbound and Outbound). The
top 5% of the sample size (roughly 432 of the top ranked samples) is removed. The next highest sample after the removal of
top 5% is the 95
percentile sustained usage level for the month. The highest 95
percentile sample between the Inbound
and Outbound samples is considered the sustained usage level for billing purposes.
